I. Salutations
Hello lovelies!
It has been quite a long spell since I have sent out an e-mailer (a year?!?). Last fall I made the decision to spend more time at home and then when winter arrived, I found myself a bit under the weather and it seemed prudent to plant some roots in my mountain town. Then there was that whole eloping thing and before I knew it, this summer was rounding the bend towards autumn.

The Aspens are turning their brittle gold and now the coniferous hillsides are punctuated by patches of impossible yellow. For three days last week, great numbers of robins passed through Nederland on their way to warmer climes along with a Stellar's Jay or two. The baby swallows under the eves at the post office have all fledged (there were three little ones in the mud nest right over the front door) and the entire flock is long gone. Our first snow fell on my birthday last saturday, fat flakes spinning horizontally from the west. Certainly an auspicious beginning to 35.

I am working with an new booking agent, Craig Conor at Broadline Booking. What this means is that I will be back on the road in the coming year, bringing The Reverie to a town near you (beginning with Laramie, WY this Saturday). I have missed you all greatly!

In other news, my annual home town show is set for Friday, November 10th at the Louisville Center for the Arts. It will be wonderful to once again play for the most supportive community I have ever known in a venue I simply adore. Advance tickets are on sale now on the bethamsel.org website (http://www.bethamsel.org/louisville_main.html) and as we're expecting the show to sell out, I recommend getting your tickets early. Thankfully it will be AFTER the midterm elections. I can't wait!

I hope this finds you and your loved ones very well and that autumn is a full of slanting light, delicata squash, and late season baseball!
